29th, 2010. september morning, september 29th, 2010. of captioning funded by cbs rain is gone thank goodness at least here in the city for the moment. good morning, everybody i'm harry smith. >> a lot is cooking in the tropics. good morning, everyone i'm maggie rodriguez. >> we'll get to that in a sengd. one of the other stories we're covering this morning you've heard of this out of texas, a brawl that he erupted, not a college game or semipro game or a high school game but at a pee wee football game. jeff glor will investigate and we'll have that for you in a bit. first we start in south florida. a tropical depression is pushing through bringing heavy rain and possible flooding. and before it's all over, it could impact much of the east coast. sherry williams of our miami station wfor is in miami beach and has the very latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning,
harry. in south florida, getting quite the soaking. i'm actually wading in water as we are here on miami beach, of course with the heavy downpours, flooding is a big concern today. the roadway behind me already washed out as drivers have been dealing with that as they come through this area. so, flooding is a big concern as these downpours continue to hit us. they have come through overnight into the morning hours. the rain just picking up on us moments ago. the worst of what we're being told is we've been dealing with this all morning. the bad news about that, it's not going away anytime soon as we are expected to continue dealing with this flooding and water collecting and gathering south florida as the day goes on. harry. >> sherry williams, thank you very much. we go over to dave price and find out where this storm is headed g. morning, sir. >> she was right. we are just seeing the storm pick up, not very well organized right now but going over the florida peninsula around south florida into the atlantic where it will get some energy and that rotation is going to be more well formed. our biggest concerns, once it
moves through florida, rolling into the carolinas, places like wilmington already pounded, another three possibly to eight inches of rain expected as this system begins to zoom on up the coast and, again, it is going to follow a quick path all the way through to the northeast but the biggest concerns tomorrow, what could be, it could become a tropical storm, later on today. that would be nicole. we'll watch it but a serious rainmaker and the concern is flooding. back to you. maggie. >> people forget hurricane season goes until the end of november. naing you very much. the latest emergency landing with another airliner in milwaukee. our news correspondent nancy cordes is in washington with the latest. good morning, nancy. >> reporter: good morning. tuesday' emergency landing bears striking and troubling similarities to last saturday's incident at new york's jfk
airport. skywest airlines flight 3074 enrote from omaha to milwaukee was forced to make an emergency landing tuesday night. the problem? the plane's left landing gear was stuck. >> you could hear him trying to put the landing gear down about four or five times. >> reporter: about 5:10:00 p.m., the plane with 36 passengers and a crew of three, landed safely. it was eerily reminiscent, though, of last saturday's dramatic landing at jfk. >> heads down, stay down. >> reporter: delta connection flight 4951 carrying 64 people, also could not lower part of its landing gear. >> brace for impact. >> reporter: lighting the night sky in a shower of sparks as one wing dragged along the tarmac. no one was injured. but, both planes were products of the canadian company bombardier, both of the crj model series, a plane with at least five landing gear malfunctions in two years. december 15th, 2008, a mesa airlines crj-900 landed safely
at chicago's o'hare. june 11th, 2009 an atlantic southeast airline crj 200 made an emergency landing in atlanta. may 23rd of this year jet another skywest crj 200 touched down safely in ontario, california. bombardier released a statement about the latest incident saying, quote, the aircraft has logged more than 27 million flight hours and more than 22 million take-off and landing cycles so these are very good and reliable aircraft. >> you mentioned five similar incident the last two years. is that unusual? >> reporter: it is unusual. it is not that uncommon for a tire to blow, which makes landing a little more nerve wracking but for the landing gear to fail a a altogether is much more serious. the planes are commuter jets and make short flights, many flights a day and there is more wear and tear on the landing gear but still something like this shouldn't happen. >> what about the faa announcing any plans to ground aircraft or
do additional safety inspections in light of this? >> reporter: no word from the faa yet but will certainly be taking a look at this problem happening twice in rapid succession. >> nancy cordes in washington. thank you, nancy. harry? to president obama back on the campaign trail trying to reignite the fire in young voters who helped him win the white house. but getting them to support democrats this year seems to be a bit of a challenge. cbs news chief white house correspondent chip reid is traveling with the president in des moines. good morning, chip. >> reporter: good morning. the president is doing whatever he can to fire up the democratic base before election day. he told "rolling stone" magazine it is irresponsible and inexcusable for democrats not to go to the polls and at the university of wisconsin he gave a barn-burner of a speech. >> what did you say, wisconsin? >> yes, we can! >> reporter: recalling his glory days on the 2008 campaign trail. >> hello, wisconsin! >> reporter: president obama rally ad raucous crowd of at
least 15,000 people at the university of wisconsin in a speech us that beamed to more than 100 college campus campuses nationwide. >> we cannot sit this one out. we cannot let this country fall backwards because the rest of us didn't care enough to fight. the stakes are too high for our country and for your future. >> reporter: this is the first in a series of campaign rallies aimed at reigniting enthusiasm among young voters who helped propel the president to victory two years ago. but, the problem for democrats is that many young voters are far less interested in the midterm elections now just five weeks away. >> as far as this election coming up, i don't think it's there at all. >> just trying to get excitement for other people, not himself. i guess that kind of changes. >> reporter: makes it a lot harder. >> yeah. >> our united states senator russ feingold. >> reporter: other democrats like senator russ feingold who recently avoided appearing with the president at a campaign event but tuesday night made a surprise stop.
>> you are my president. you are our president. and i'm thrilled that you are here with all us badgers! >> reporter: the president returns the favor hoping to give a boost to fine gold, not long ago was favored to win election but is now trailing in the polls. >> because, if everybody who fought for change in 2008 shows up to vote in 2010, we will win. we will win. the polls say the same thing, we will win. >> reporter: today, the president changes the focus back to the economy, with another backyard event but there are more campaign-style rallies on college campuses scheduled in the weeks to come. back to you. >> chip reid in des moines, thanks. joins is bob woodward author of the new book o alabama's wars live in the studio this morning. this is a book, ostensibly about afghanistan. as it turns out, it really is about pakistan, which is in the news these days because of all
the drone attacks. the lara logan piece, right on the border and 60 minutes there over the weekend. this is a war that's not going away. but, as it turns out, it ends up being so much more about pakistan. >> exactly. i saw that 60 minutes piece and you see how violent it is in afghanistan and, of course, the dirty little secret here that's not a secret is that the safe havens for al qaeda and the taliban are in pakistan and so they've literally, there in pakistan, the taliban inurgent go back for r & r weekends then their trucks being waved through by pakistanis at their border checkpoints to go into afghanistan to kill american soldiers. >> the thing that is, i think, so interesting about this book is it puts all the characters in their proper places. and then you see, though, that
these folks are infused with ambition and intelligence and have lots of things at stake and there really is quite a lot of friction among them all, as they are theoretically trying to get to the same place. >> yes, that's right. i mean, it's intense. what i find is that -- kind of the summation of some of this -- so much is unsettled. the president's committed to 30,000 more troops into afghanistan. but, in these secret meetings in the situation room in the white house, he repeatedly says, we need a plan to get out. there can be no wiggle room. i'm not going to do ten years. he is out of afghanistan psychologically and the question is, for a commander in chief of don't you have to be kind of the guy who's up there, yes, we can, we're going to win? >> uh-huh. well, of course, when he takes
over they are already in this war for seven years and what he was not going to do in the book was give the military a blank check in an open-ended deal saying go do your best. >> yes. he tried to limit it in terms of the number of troops and the strategy. some people in the military, like general petraeus felt, well, we've got 30,000, we asked for 40,000. the limitation on the mission is -- is not that great and what we have to do -- and, i mean, this is true at cbs, the "washington post," any institution -- >> reality. >> -- show progress and you'll be given more time. >> one of the criticisms that comes to you when you write these books is people think you must give truth serum to the people you interview but also people come off best are the ones who talk to you the most. how you would respond to that? >> well, i talk to nearly everyone in this case, including the president and the vice
president, secretary of defense have said they talked to me. the key to this in the spine of the book are these notes of nsc meetings, the documentation. so, it's not somebody's favored spun recollection. it is exactly what happened. and, you know, some people -- there are many -- this is what can make your head hurt. you can look at it, like the white house read it, people there, and robert gibbs, the press secretary, essentially embraced the book. said, read the whole book. this is a story of a president struggling. other people have read it and said this is a story of a president who doesn't know exactly where he's going. >>s it t depends on your -- where you come from, what you take away from it, without question. one of the other very telling things is stanley mcchris extol, sort of the foretelling of his own downfall and lots of really
very interesting and amazing things in here. bob woodward, we're out of time. thank you very much for being here this morning. >> to the news desk now, lots it talk about there, too. erica hill is here. >> good morning. this morning security officials in several european countries track possible terror plots with islamic connections. the alleged plots include commando-style raids and even hostage taking. cbs news correspondent mark phillips is in london this morning with the latest. good morning. >> good morning, erica. security agencies are calling the threats credible islamist-linked terror plots but have said no attack was imminent and with one exception, the terror level has not been raised. the only actual evidence of any increased terror threat has been in france, where there have been a series of security alerts including at the eiffel tower last night. the second threat there in two weeks. the terror threat level has been raised in france, which fears of
backlash from north african militants over attempts to ban the wearing of burqas by muslim women. britain and germany have also been named as potential targets but terror threat levels have not been raised. >> it comes out of the maturity in the style of attacks that pakistan has very sadly been having for a long time. >> reporter: the alleged plots are said to have been modeled on the attacks in mumbai, india two years ago in which commando-style terrorists from pakistan attack public places, killing more than 1770 people. this recent plot, security sources say, has been foyled by the increased use of unmanned drone strikes on terror cells in pakistan, as well. known leading figures of al qaeda groups have reportedly been targeted. there are inconsistencies in this story, particularly in france, where security alerts have been prompted by phoned-in bomb threats. normally, al qaeda doesn't do warnings. one added agreedient in the
terror story today the arrest of a man in spain of a man suspected of financing al qaeda in. spain has been trying to nab him for two years. >> mark, thank you. >> a victory for the obama administration in the debate over stem cells. yesterday a federal appeals court ruled government-funned embryonic stem cell research can continue for now. they ordered last month to block that research, a decision that is being appealed. of. former president carter is expected to be released from a cleveland hospital this morning. mr. carter was admitted yesterday after experiencing an upset stomach during a flight from atlanta. the 85-year-old former president plans to resume his book tour today. and actress lindsay lohan is back in rehab this morning. yesterday the new photo was

that's a quick look at your weather picture. much of the rest of the country rather quiet, high heat in the pacific northwest. we'll talk about that in a while, folks. >> thank you, dave. >> yep. >> coming up for us, one husband, four wives and one reality tv show. now the whole family is under investigation after allowing cameras to follow their every

teach good sportsmanship. which is why a fight between coaches and parents at a pee wee football game is attracting national attention and outrage. cbs news national correspondent jeff glor has the story. good morning. >> harry, good morning to you. it was supposed to be a fun game for 11 and 12-year-olds in texas 20 miles south of houston and became an adult brawl. now, the kids are paying the price for their parents' mistakes. a fan shooting home video of the pee wee football game captured the ugly scene from the stands. it began just after you see one player for the patriots run for a touchdown. what you don't see out of the camera's view, two players who collided beginning to scuffle. one parent stepped in, followed by many, many more. before long, a wave of angry dads streamed away from the field, pushing, shoving, punching. >> the coaches actually did that
in front of us because that's a bad example for us. >> reporter: the melee included this especially ugly moment. one patriots coach blind-siding a father from the other team, a sucker orders punch to the back of the head even while one of the young players nearby tried to play peacemaker encouraging adults to settle down. obviously he had little success. fans watched stunned. >> shock and waiting, hoping that it's going to end any minute. >> reporter: now, what's inciting even more anger and frustration is a decision by the local football league, which has banned kids from both teams from postseason play. even though it's pretty clear the parents were responsible for elevating a rough tackle between kids into an all-out brawl between adults. >> i don't think it's fair they punished up for what the coaches did. >> parents and players will try to convince the board to change
its ruling. but right now the league has said that ruling is final. harry. >> the kids are being punished. >> right. >> what's happening with the coaches? >> some are being punished, as well. the first one has resigned now banned for life from the league. some of the other coaches have been tossed out for the remainder of the season but authorities are saying right now no criminal charges are going to be filed. even given that sucker-punch you saw, which is -- >> what a story. wow. >> some of the fathers said they just all had dad moments. >> off the charts. jeff glor, thank you very much. do appreciate it. up next, she's australia's meks top model, oh, no, not her. the live tv mistake you won't believe when we come back. my doctor said most calcium supplements...

her first walk down the runway and all of a sudden producers rip off her sash and grab her tiera saying, oops, story, we need the roses back. something kind of similar happened in australia, not a beauty pageant but "australia's next top model" they announced the winner and turns out they got it wrong. it turned out innocently enough. >> the winner and australia's next top model for 2010 is -- it's you, kelsey. >> reporter: the 19-year-old was crowned the contest winner during the live tv finale last night. but while giving her acceptance speech, host sarah murdoch interrupted with a reality show's worst nightmare. >> i'm so sorry about this, oh, my god. i don't know what to say. this is not -- it was a complete accident, i'm so sorry. it's amanda, i'm so sorry.
it was fed to me wrong. >> an apparent back-stake miscommunication resulted in the wrong order. kelsey was actually the runner-up and 18-year-old amanda ware, the winner. she took the news pretty well, congratulating her rival and even trying to console the distraught hope. >> don't worry. it's okay. >> it's an honest mistake, it's fine. >> reporter: but the controversy didn't end with speculation swirling the mistake was no accident and the bizarre mix-up was a publicity stunt to boost ratings, vehemently denied by the show's judges. >> at the end of the show, why would you do that? >> of course it fell really good to win for that 2030 seconds. you know, amanda won fair and square with her voice and like i said i'm here for the career, i want a modeling career, you know and to be i feel like i've achieved that. >> reporter: along with a place

in this morning's "eye on parenting" our experts answer your questions, you asked about everything from health and finances to the birds and the bees and here to respond our early show contributors dr. jennifer hartstein, child and adolescent psychologist, early show medical show correspondent dr. jennifer ashton and our news and business correspondent rebecca jarvis. we have a lot to talk about. >> yes, we do. >> i want to start with a question for you dr. hartstein. this one comes from a viewer in los angeles. >> i have a 9-year-old daughter and she's grilling us already about the talk. so, she knows about the body parts, men's instrumental cycle. she doesn't have a detail.
i'm hoping you have information on a decision to approach it. >> very important and common question. >> it is very important and common question. she needs to know a lot about the basics so you want to keep that conversation open and answer the questions that she's asking you. she's 9. it's an appropriate time to start that dialogue in an ongoing way. shouldn't be a single talk. it should be multiple times over however long she wants to ask. let her lead the conversation, because i think the fact is the parents may think she wants to know one thing and she wants to know something else. you want her to be able to be open. the more open and honest you are with your kid at that time and your parenting can let them feel comfortable, the more and better prepared they are later. i think it is a real important protective factor. parents have to get over their own anxiety about that and be open to talking -- >> this is very serious. you have written an entire book about it. >> that's right. the other important thing, harry, 9 might sound very young but a recent study showed girls as young as 7 years of age are
having breast development. so that's when you need to talk with them as jen mentioned. >> ongoing. >> it has to. one time is not enough. things change the o older they get. >> we have a specific question for you, dr. ashton, from our "early show" facebook page. stacey asks what is safe to give my one-year-old for a cold? this is a really good question. >> so important, harry, especially this time of year when a lot of colds are going around, kids are back this school, doing sports. recently in the news we've heard a lot about the fact that over-the-counter cold medicines really can be dangerous in children under the age of 6 and the american academy of pediatrics is really trying to emphasize to parents let the cold run its course. most colds last five to seven days. >> as a parent your instinct, i have to respond to this in some way. >> right. >> the best response is? >> watchful waiting there. are things you can do because any parent of a child knows when
they are congested not only are they miserable but you're miserable. saline drops, really safe, you can use a drop or spray and use a bulb suction to pull that stuff out of their those and make them filbert. important to be well hydrated, drink water and lots of fluids. last will bring them into the bathroom, human fire sgloopz steam, steam, steam. we have a skype kwi. are you with us? what's your question. >> we have two small children and my question is when we should start teaching them about being responsible for money and saving for the future? >> it's a great question, a question a lot of parents ask themselves and the answer is it is never too early to start but just like the medical responses you've heard from both jennifers this morning it is about an ongoing conversation not sitting down and having one conversation in life with your children but constantly teaching them through how you behave yourself and, also, when you are at the grocery store there, are moments
to teach them about the cost of things, always a good idea, also, to set up bank accounts for your children and take them to the bank when you set it up so they can see this had how it all works. >> money has to go before money comes out. >> that's right. >> how crazy. >> thank you. >> this is specifically for you, dr. hartstein. you'll remember a week or so ago we had the story about the kids, bullies on the school bus. there is a disabled child on the school bus. these kids are being bullied. the father gets on the bus, tries to, you know, do something about it. intervene in some way, shape, or form. one of our viewers wrote us a note and said, how can a kid be expected to learn anything when they are scared, depressed, embarrassed and abused? what do you give open owe what advice do you give a parent in a situation like this? >> it's a really, really tough situation when we are so flooded with emotion it is hard to let any information in at all for. adults or for kids. especially for kids to regulate it. it is important for parents and schools to work together at really figuring out what's
happening. put in some anti-bullying programs, talk about violence, find those kids because what happens is they are more prone to depression, anxiety, more prone to not going to school and really having school failure. we really want to work with the schools, with the families, to talk about how to put in some protective programming, get them extra help outside of school if they need it, all of those things so that they can really participate the best they can. >> a tough one. dr. ashton, back to you. this question comes from a mom from dallas, take a look. >> how important is it to immunize your children and what could happen if you don't? >> couldn't be more controversial. >> absolutely. but, the cdc, centers for disease control, is crystal clear, harry, immunizations save lives. we have to remember 50, 100 years ago, people died of things like chickenpox and measles. we have heard recently about whooping cough outbreaks, infants dying being exposed by people who don't get
revaccinated by adults. understand it is a public health issue and for your individual child. if you have questions or concerns talk to their pediatricians. they are very accustomed to spacing out the scheduled immunizations and really talking parents through their concern. >> jennifer, jennifer, rebecca, thank you all very, very much. for more "eye on parenting" all you need to do including blogs, photo essays, web series, go to our website earlyshow.cbsnews.com i have a feeling we'll be doing this again. up next, don't call a mover until you see our undercover investigation. we caught a common scam on tape as it happened. you don't want to miss it. we'll be right back. for strong bones, i take calcium.
but my doctor told me that most calcium supplements... aren't absorbed properly unless taken with food. he recommended citracal. it's different -- it's calcium citrate, so it can be absorbed with or without food. citracal. how are you getting to a happier place? running there? dancing there? how about eating soup to get there? campbell's soups fill you with good nutrition, farm-grown ingredients, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do.
relocate. when you hire a professional mover to help ease the load. how do you make sure you didn't get ripped off. so you soon cope pen is here to tell us g. morning. >> the better bns bureau has received more than 27,000 moving-related complaints. unless you do your homework, you may be the next moving scam victim it's exhausting. it's expensive. and, it's just plain stressful. but, many americans say moving wasn't just a nightmare. it was a scam. >> more than 40 million americans will move to another home this year so there are a lot of people out there that fraudulent movers can take vanch of. >> reporter: tile ler green moved his family from the east coast to phoenix and hired budget van lines to do the job. he received a binding estimate for $3400. >> somebody out of california. >> reporter: but budget
van lines was a moving broker. they hired a second company, ideal, moving and storage, to execute the move. >> brokers are really middlemen that are involved in the process because they are looking for a piece of the action. that's not the person you are going to be dealing with. >> reporter: to tyler's surprise, when ideal showed up on moving day, they had a different contract for him to sign. this time, for $9,000. $5500 more than the original binding estimate. >> after everything had been loaded, they were writing stuff down and kind of gave me a copy of it and didn't seem like it was right. >> reporter: so, when tyler greene got to arizona, he asked for help from the arizona department of weights and measures. >> we run into a great deal of this. i wish it weren't so. >> reporter: when the movers arrived in phoenix. >> i'm skrchlt j. strong from the department of -- >> reporter: j.j.str o oh and o our cameras were waiting. >> sir, the reason i'm here there was a dispute over the pricing on this. i'm interested in what your documentation shows versus what
he was sent. >> i have no idea. >> okay. >> i pick up the stuff. i don't do any paperwork. >> well, that puts you at risk. i'd prefer you dfnt do that. >> reporter: turns the driver in the unmarked ryder truck worked for yet a third company hired to move tyler greene's belongings. >> you the one unfortunately to make a final decision because you are here and the possessions here -- >> reporter: after a quick call to ideal moving & storage. >> we got a major problem here. >> reporter: the movers decided to unload the truck for the original price of $3400. >> the load and unload has been fine. it's just the business that came in between it that was the problem. >> reporter: and a statement to o cbs news ideal moving & stoernlg says, quote, the customer received a bining estimate based on an incomplete list of items that was provided during the initial order for service. budget van lines says, quote, due to this incident bvl has
suspended service with ideal moving & stoernlg pending further investigation. based on our report the federal motor carrier safety administration is investigating tyler greene's case, maggie. >> he was lucky he had someone to help him. >> exactly right. >> for people who don't, what steps should people take to make things go well. >> first, know who you are dealing with, make sure the company you are hiring is the company doing the move. you saw in his case a lot of different people involved. also, make sure you get an in-home estimate. that means that somebody comes to your house, they go through single room, they see everything that you want moved. and then, also you can go to website protectyourmove.gov, great information what to do when moving or get scammed. >> very good stuff. susan, thank you. harry? we've got a story with a happy ending. lovely young couple here, they are -- he's going to propose, right, on the brooklyn bridge and he has the ring out and he

illuminated costume drams -- >> and a decency and moral sense. >> we took her to the town hall here in london, where they filmed scenes from her new movie about school children "never let me go". >> incredibly lnt and you look at them, as well, wow, how touching this is troord nary then you realize the truth. >> students here are special. keeping yourselves well, keeping yourselves healthy inside is of paramount importance. >> in the film modern medicine a is taken to chilling extremes. the movie depicks a movie in which children are born and bred to be organ donors. >> it is frightening but more about humanity's ability to look the other way, i think, in the fact that your morals can go out the window if you think that you
can survive in a certain way, whatever your morals may be. >> there's a scene where you all as teenagers are all in that cafe. because you have for real experience with the outside world i know you've done roll-play within school lessons. i wonder if you can say anything els else? >>. >> a moment in your own life where you were comfortably properly? >> comfortably. ever day, unfortunately. i think that that -- i think, again, if you are taking the whole film as a snap tsdzshot of everybody's life that's very much the first time you go into a pub, desperately trying to be grown up but not actually able to do that and i'm constantly doing that.
i do all the time. i'm wearing high heels today, a really bad idea. >> within the film you are in a love triangle. >> yeah. >> have you ever been in a love triangle yourself. >> how boring of me. >> it's time. >> it's time. i don't know. we'll see. >> shall we all look for o some ribbon together? >> her love life seems rock solid, actually, seen with the actor since they met. although she absolutely does not talk about him. >> i've just seen a short film by your real leading man. >> yes. >> how is it working about together again? >> i have no idea who you are talking about, by the way. um, it was -- yeah, it was great. >> but it isn't limited to -- o earlier this month she stopped
traffic in the streets of paris fi filming for chanel. is that the real you? do you feel comfortable, or are you more of a mo-ped. >> great fun, really good fun. how many times can you wear a beige catsuit by chanel. >> did you get to take it home? >> no. >> while no one wears a costume, any better, she seems casual, comfortable in her own skin. she's such a girl's girl and someone that you really want to be friends with. after we did the interview i said to her have you got a free day now and she said, yes, i'm off to o do my washing, laundry you to, so glamorous. >> she really does seem really down to earth. i was watching your piece, amanda and trying to think of my favorite, the ones you
mentioned, i thought of so many and i remembered that little movie she did, "bend it like beckham" where she played soccer -- football. did she mention that. >> i asked her that question, do you sort of kick a ball around? he said it's really funny you ask me that because just the other day she went to the park apparently with a load of men who were friends and they all thought she would be fannic and she said the minute she kicked the ball she missed and screamed and her leg was too high, she said i'm absolutely rubbish at football. so it was obviously camera tickery. >> i love your new hair-do, by the way. >> thank you. congratulations on the baby. >> i'll send you a picture. >> do. >> last week trey turner proposed to his girlfriend, now fiance, kelsey kramer. now you can understand why his hands may have been shaking. unfortunately he was stanning on o the brooklyn bridge with the
engagement ring and it was dropped. luckily, though, a construction engineer working on the bridge proved that ring's best friends. they are joining us along with their hero doug reese. this is a wonderful story. i love sitting here getting to know the three of you this morning, take us back to that moment, trey, why did you pick the brooklyn bridge? there is a story to that, as well. >> first of all, we're from florida and so kelsey loves water and there's lots of bridges in florida. i mean, bridges are really one of her favorite things. she's always, you know, talked about it, she loves the water and we came up here and visited. she's working up here now so she had just moved up here and we visited over the summer and her parents actually used to live up here and one of the things they said, they are like you have to go across the brooklyn bridge and walk across it and so fun, you get to see the city and everything and we had done that, one of our favorite things and really magical and this was kind of just this memory of us together and one of kelsey's favorite things. i talked to her mom before when i bought the ring.
she took me out to dinner after i bought the ring she's like how are you going to do it, all excited. i was like, i want to surprise her and all that and we decided the brooklyn bridge would be the perfect place. >> it's perfect. that in itself is the telling of a great story how you got engaged. so, kelsey there, you are standing on the bridge, trey is getting ready to go off, ready to go on tour, a musician. you are going to have to sa good-bye soon then all of a sudden everything is happening. did you know at the time he was going to propose? >> i had no idea. no, i just thought we were going out for a celebration of him leaving -- not of him leaving -- but, yeah, my birthday. and so, we were walking and he was behind me, it was really busy and crowded and the first thing i xhoo knew i heard his voice and i heard something and i turned around and knew from his face what he dropped after i saw his face but no idea before that at all. >> drew: realized he dropped your engagements ring.
